Governor's Council on
Impaired Driving
Your Subtitle text
Message from Governor Matt Mead



On September 16, 2011, I signed an Executive Order establishing my Council on Impaired Driving.  Impaired driving  has touched thousands of lives reaching every corner of our state.

We have taken important steps to curtail impaired driving during the last ten years, but there is more to do.  This year, I signed a new law which makes it more difficult for repeat offenders to avoid prosecution.  Efforts to stop impaired driving are also benefiting from advancements such as ignition interlock devices, which prevent impaired drivers from starting their vehicles.

I created my council on Impaired Driving to continue the fight against impaired driving and to help prevent impaired driving related deaths.  The Governor's Council facilitates research, discussion and planning to reduce impaired driving in Wyoming.  The Council is tasked with identifying priority issues, developing prevention strategies and tackling other initiatives to address the problem.

I believe this Council is necessary to keep all of our citizens safe.


Sincerely,

Matthew H. Mead
Governor
